Two Medicine Campground

A couple weeks ago we headed over the boarder to Two Medicine Campground in East Glacier Montana for a weekend camping trip with the kids and Adam and Jess and their kids. Because it’s a national park we knew it would be busy and fill up fast so we woke the kids up at the crack of dawn and were on the road by 6:30am. The kids were not impressed but we were sure grateful we did because we barely found two spots together and the rest of the spots were full by 10am! I’ve never been to this Campground before and I was immediately in love. We were directly across from the lake, it was a 30 second walk through some trees and it was beautiful.

After we got unloaded and set up the boys headed off to fish and Reegan, Robyn and Paislee were antsy to get their kayaks on the lake but first had to take them to the boat inspection site to be checked over.

They also had to make sure they were clean.

They passed inspection and were off to the water. Jess and I blew up dingys and headed to the lake ourselves. This is how our entire day went. I mean our whole ENTIRE day, Jess had a beautiful sunburn to show for it haha After dinner we lit a fire and made camp fire treats and the kids played games that turned into a terribly horrific wedgie game. The things kids do for fun these days haha

The next day was a little over cast and as the boys did more fishing, us girls took a nice little hike to a waterfall.

I think the girls were expecting some majestical, tropical, raging waterfall so they were a little disappointed when they had to view it from afar. I loved it anyway.

The guys had heard about a little hike that apparently led to a honey hole of a fishing spot so after lunch the ten of us gathered lawn chairs and snacks and started hiking. I should clarify, when I say hike, I mean a couple km walk through the woods where the path slightly inclines. Nothing an actual hiker would bat an eye at, but beautiful nonetheless. It was a lovely couple hours of fresh air and conversation. Adam even caught a fish!

Our last evening consisted of more fishing and of course a campfire, the games were a lot tamer, fortunately.

Our last morning we woke up just in time to pack up and hit the road before the parks noon check out time. Adam told us about a restaurant down the road that served deep fried stuffed French toast so obviously we had to stop. Sadley we were too late for breakfast and French toast so we ended up just ordering regular lunch items which were still totally delicious.

I’m a big fan of the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes” so I was thrilled this place was called The Whistle Stop 

Because it was a national park, the kids weren’t overly thrilled about rules like having to ride their bikes on the paved paths or the 11pm noise curfew but I spent the whole weekend in awe of how beautiful it was and I’ll definitely be going back the first chance I get.9A24CB75-1DB8-4F92-BE9C-28732DC54412

 

 

One thought on “Two Medicine Campground

  1. I’ve never been down that way, I’ll have to check it out! I laughed at the girls being unimpressed by the waterfall. I remember I couldn’t believe that Ace and Ryan weren’t impressed by the views from Bears Hump and asked to never do it again. Ha ha!
